Letters to the editor

I am Lou Bernard

LOU BERNARD Lock Haven A while back I wrote a letter protesting the self-checkouts at the local Weis Market on Bald Eagle Street. To recap: I hate them. I want people to have jobs, and I prefer people at those registers. I absolutely will not use the self-checkouts; they disgust ...

Where there’s a will, there’s a way!

CAROLE ANDERSON Jersey Shore I’m writing to ask what is wrong with this generation? People would rather see buildings torn down than trying to restore them. Getting together a “GoFundme” account the building could be restored. A new roof on the Town Tavern wouldn’t cost as ...

Unfair taxes

Climate challenge

‘Coward in chief’

On not hating Trump

TIMOTHY MANNELLO Williamsport I don’t hate Donald Trump; that is, I wish him no harm. I hope good things happen to him. In fact, I pray that he becomes what he already thinks he is: The greatest president in American history. Honestly. I do, however, find him intolerable, even abhorrent. ...

Don’t underestimate them

AL SEVER Williamsport A recent letter implied that immigrants can not be poor as they have cell phones. They have cell phones because they get phones thrown away by Americans and repair them. Go to the weekly market in Chichicastanango, Guatemala, and you will see Mayan farmers set up a ...
